Depression - whether or not you have been trying for a long time depression can be a symptom or cause of fertility problems.  Often it is linked with a lack of energy, insomnia, low appetite and libido.  We will always recommend you see your GP to register symptoms of depression and to take prescribed medication if that is necessary.

Hormonal headaches - Many hormonal headaches are caused by fluctuating blood sugar levels, so nutrition is key.  They can also be exacerbated by stress, insomnia and other symptoms.  Acupuncture is also often useful and in some cases we use Chinese herbal medicine. Counselling and/or hypnotherapy can help deal with stress if this is making the issue worse.

Anxiety & stress - acupuncture is ideal for with stress but herbal medicine and counselling/hypnotherapy can also be used, especially if your sleep is disturbed or it is a longer term problem. Acupuncture has been shown in clinical trials to decrease the amount of hormones caused by anxiety. Nutritional analysis of mineral ratios can also be important as an imbalance can cause anxiety symptoms and chronic stress can cause the body to deplete mineral and vitamin resources more quickly.

Menopausal symptoms - depending on the severity of the symptoms we work with nutrition and herbal medicine as well as acupuncture to help with night sweats, hot flushes, headaches, joint pain, foggy head and forgetfulness as well as any other symptoms that are associated with peri/menopause.
